Hi Friends 🙂
First things first – I have gotten a few emails from readers asking about the food I’ve been posting. I do not post all of the food I eat each day. I also do not photograph my plate of food usually – so please do not assume that is all I ate or that I ate “too much”, etc. Sometimes I just show a side dish, a breakfast, a snack, etc. I eat what is right for me – the blog is a place for me to post some meal ideas or recipes that I have tried. Thank you!
Second, the new blog name will be revealed sometime this weekend – I’m pretty excited for things to change around here!
I am DREAMING of Spring and as I flipped through an older Cooking Light magazine, I was drawn to this:
Seared Scallops with Fennel and Grapefruit Salad.
Ok – I didn’t have Fennel but I thought I could make this work. Look at the picture above and now look at mine:
So they are nothing alike except they share grapefruit 🙂 I did sauté up some scallops but to be honest they kind of grossed me out. Jason liked them – the smell was not something I enjoyed.
By the way, what is a scallop? I know it is some kind of sea animal, but I want to hear your descriptions. Does it live in a shell like a clam?
Before dinner, I went to the gym and pounded out 3 miles. I say pounded out because that is how my left knee/IT Band felt. It was pretty bad. I need to start foam-rolling more often because it does help ease that pain. I also need to start icing after each of my runs. I’ve been slacking in those areas – so I’m going to start doing those things and if my knee still feels terrible I’ll make an appointment with my doctor.
It feels like my knee is almost filled with fluid and feels very stiff – during my cool down it hurt just to walk.
I know this post is a random jumble of things – but that is how the day has been!
Let me show you the best part of my Thursday:
*What are your plans for the weekend?
*Am I the only person on earth who doesn’t know what a scallop is?
*Do you drink Kombucha? What do you think?
